Stanford Amateur Radio Club (W6YX)
Museum Radio Station Project
Contact: Ken Dueker (KB6BPM): firstname.lastname@example.org
The purpose of this project is to recreate some of the historic radio equipment set-ups the Stanford Amateur Radio Club once had at its station.
In the 1950s and 1960s, the Stanford Amateur Radio Club's primary operating equipment consisted of transmitters, receivers, and other accessories made by the Collins Radio Company. Unfortunately, over time, the Club disposed of most of this "obsolete" equipment.
In an effort to replace some of the Club's lost history, the Museum Station is currently looking for the following equipment:
1950s Collins Station:
KW-1 Transmitter - 1950
75A-4 Receiver - 1955
KWS-1 Transmitter - 1955
1960s Collins "S Line" Station:
75S-3B/3C Receiver - 1967
32S-3/3A Transmitter - 1963
62S-1 VHF Transverter - 1963
30L-1 Linear Amplifier - 1961
30S-1 Linear Amplifier - 1959
Information about this equipment is available at the WA3KEY Collins Museum Web Site:
Our goal is to put this equipment on the air as an operational exhibit, providing an opportunity for current and future generations of radio operators to experience history.
If you are interested in making a TAX DEDUCTIBLE DONATION to the Stanford Amateur Radio Club of any Collins equipment and/or funding to help us rebuild our historic station, please contact us immediately.
